Monkeyshot#4 — Monkeyboxes

The Monkeycrew is back on track with 5 new sweet little animations. This time around we decided to let some of our little Monkeys go wild on their own. We armed them with their most favourite toys to see what they end up with. In the future we will release more of these whenever we see fit.

In 2011, the monkeymen crew did some noncommercial clips, including Monkeyshot#4 (working title: “Monkeyboxes”). Be shure to also check the others, also the outtake#1, which I like especially.

My Role

I worked out the details (animation layout, look) of the rough concept given by Veith Michel. Besides that, I did all of the 3D modelling and animation, shading, and rendering, as well as some of the 3D-layer-compositing.
